Weird Science is the earliest film I remember seeing in theaters...although it was probably not my first film to see, it is the first one that I remember seeing at the theater.

The film was playing at a cinema that years later became a discount theater.

The theater had two screens and seating capacity was 410.

The last movie I attended there was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which I took my daughter to.

Unfortunately the theater closed about a year ago and has since been torn down. I had many nice film memories there and it was sad to see it go.

The very first movie I saw I a theater was Disney’s Peter Pan.
On my own the first one was either An Officer and a Gentleman or E.T. I don’t remember exactly. It depends on which came out first.

I was born in 1968; the very first movie I "remember" seeing in the theater was "The Rescuers" (1976). My mother also took me to see a double-feature, "Escape from Witch Mountain/Return to Witch Mountain" around the same time. The next one I remember seeing in the theater was "Star Wars" (1977).

I remember seeing THE BOATNIKS (an obscure live-action Disney film) at the Hartford Drive-In in Newington, CT in my pajamas with my parents. Thats got to be my first movie memory...drive-in anyhow...and it must have been around 74 or 75 when those Disney movies were in re-runs at places like Drive-In's and stuff. I am pretty sure it was playing with one of the Herbie The Love Bug movies. I also remember those Witch Mountain movies, and falling in love with that girl [Smile]

The first movie that I can recall I ever went to see completely alone was, of all things, CONAN the Barbarian..and I loved it. I also have no idea how I got in the theatre, since I'm pretty sure that was an R movie [Big Grin]

I remember taking my future wife to see The Lost Boys on one of our first dates.

Since then the movie experience has largely gone downhill for me. Not only are the movies I actually enjoy so few and far between these days, but the theatre experience has changed so badly that I almost can't relate. The endless pitches, the cell phones, the loud patrons and badly behaving kids, kids flipping open LED-laden phones 20 times an hour to text.....I've given up.

Home Projector, 110" screen...DVD, HDDVD and BD....I'm golden. Plus you get used to DVD/HDDVD/BD quality and go to the theatre and all you see are scratched and dirty prints, poppy sound, lousy focus...its embarassing.

The first movie I ever saw in a theater was Driving Miss Daisey. I remember it well because my sister and daddy went to a different movie while my mom and I saw that. She also took me to get my ears pierced afterwards because we had some time to kill befor my sis and dad were done.

Does a drive - in count?

I saw my first movie, Orca, at the drive - in. In an actual theatre, my first was Star Wars.

Ah, the memories *sighs*

[QUOTE]Originally posted by ISIS:
[QB] One of the first movies I remember seeing was "The Other Side of the Mountain". I remember me and my mom went to see it. That was 1975.

I remember seeing alot of the old Walt Disney movies at the theater when I was a kid...like Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmations, Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi, Dumbo, Old Yeller, and The Swiss Family Robinson.

I honestly think the Disney movies should still be played at the movie theaters...

Oops, forgot to comment on Isis' quote above! Isis, remember "The Apple Dumpling Gang"? I remember waiting in line for that one! How about all of those Disney movies that starred a young Kurt Russell? Ooh and "Bedknobs and Broomsticks"? Those Disney movies were great fun!

The first movie I ever saw was "Sleeping Beauty" in the theater that they run out of in the original Blob movie (the Colonial) and I was 4yrs. old.

Beauty & the Beast

yea, it's not that cool...but I was only born in 1985! Which makes perfect sense of why I am totally committed to living the 80's lifestyle right now!

The first movie I can remember seeing was "The Rescuers". I was about 6 and my parents took us to the drive-in movies. In the family van no less. *chuckles* I remember they would make me wear my pajamas so I could be put straight to bed once we got home.
